Friday's home clash against the Newcastle Diamonds has been postponed, due to bad weather.

A week of heavy rain and showers, and a forecast for more rain later today and over the weekend, forced Edinburgh promoters to cancel the meeting.

Newcastle team boss George English told, "Although we can't do much about the weather, we're disappointed as we felt we had a good chance tonight."

Monarchs co-promoter John Campbell confirmed that the match will now revert back to it's original date, Friday 10th August.
